Note from Canon Heather+
Grace and Peace, St. Andrew’s ‘ohana. 

A hymn favorite of mine that did not make it from the 1940 Hymnal into the Hymnal 1982 (but we still hold close in Na Himeni) is Blest be the tie that binds (Nani Kealoha I Paʻa).

From the 1940 Hymnal, #495, John Fawcett 
Blest be the tie that binds 
our hearts in Jesus' love: 
the fellowship of Christian minds 
is like to that above. 
Before our Father's throne 
we pour united prayers; 
our fears, our hopes,  
our aims are one; 
our comforts and our cares. 

We share our mutual woes, 
our mutual burdens bear; 
and often for each other flows 
the sympathizing tear.

 From Na Himeni O Ka Ekalesia, #64, Tr. Rev. Samuel A. Keala 
Nani ke aloha i paʻa, 
na Kristiano kupaʻa. 
Ka hui ona kini o kahi manaʻo 
i like me kela maʻo. 

ʻAuwamo na Kaumaha, 
pau pu no na luʻuluʻu 
a kulu like na wai maka aloha, 
no kela, no keia a mau. 

Ma ka noho aloha a ka Makua 
Ninini na pule haʻahaʻa. 
Na weli, ne pono, na ʻiʻini hoʻokahi, 
ka pono, ka maha a mau. 
As I have watched and wept through the past couple of weeks with all that the news has brought to us, it's the lyrics of this hymn that have rested on my heart. Like the hymn prays, we are to carry one another: through the pain, the fear, the dark nights of the soul, the joys and exultations, the changes and chances of life. We are to walk alongside each other, with each other, and with purposeful love. We are to pray together and alone, and unceasingly, and when the words run out, the Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words… 
We are to p-r-o-c-e-s-s together at all times and in all places, lifting one another along. 

I love this image, and I wonder, what if we thought of our processions with this dimension, too?  
I know that when we talk about processions in church, we are largely talking about a beautiful aspect of our tradition which has important history and ritual, but truly is about getting from here to there, purposefully. What if it also had in it this pastoral reminder of how we are to move in this world?  

You may have noticed that our 'coming in' and our 'going out' hymns which we use on Sundays are both labeled PROCESSIONAL Hymn. Our 'going out' hymn is not called 'recessional' – Naming these hymns as such is purposeful, intentional, and correct! It is a theological and liturgical statement for us, and by it we claim that we, the Church, are called together by God for a beautiful, holy, life-giving purpose and we process into worship together. We, then, are nourished by the Word and the Sacrament, through our shared prayers, music, hymnody, and holy companionship with one another, and we process together in body, mind, and spirit through our worship. Then, as the Church, we process into the world proclaiming God’s love, always moving forward together into the next holy moment and divine opportunity to serve God and God's people. We are in ongoing procession, bound together in Jesus’ Love as the Body of Christ at work in this world that so desperately needs to know this transformative and transformational Love. 

Over these next weeks, there will be bulletin boards up around the font, inviting you to add your prayers for our world, our nation, our community, our Cathedral, whatever is resting on your heart, to slips of paper and onto the boards. We will collect these prayers and share them at the end of June, and then we will repeat this in July, and we will do it again in August, and onward as the Spirit leads us in our procession and guides us in our prayers. 

Bound together in Love, this is what we do. We process together. 
Blest be the tie that binds~~Mahalo ke Akua.
With abundant aloha and fervent prayer, 
Canon Heather+ 
Pentecost Season
Special Notes for June and July from Canon Heather
Our choir will go on their annual hiatus providing a much-earned rest for our musicians and offering us a bit of summertime variation in our music with soloists, duets, quartets, and guest instrumentalists. 

Your clergy will be engaging in continuing education and respite at different points over these months. We will enjoy hearing from guest preachers a couple times in the next few weeks. (Personally speaking, I will be away and in residency for my doctoral program June 13-July 15.) 

Summer Formation – Alive St. Andrew’s – will return this July-August! Join me for these Sunday morning “Window Walks,” starting July 17, and explore windows of the Cathedral on these summer Sundays. 

Our annual school supply drive for Kalihi-Waena School will happen during the month of July! Let's fill those bins again for the wonderful keiki of Kalihi-Waena! Go Lions! Much and many mahalos to Ann Hansen for this wonderful connection! See article under "Cathedral Outreach" for more details!

2022 Cathedral Volunteer Appreciation!
As we head into the summer, we honor all the many volunteers who
share their time and talent with the Cathedral community in such a
vast myriad of ways. Our August Cathedral Life will be all about
our volunteers and their ministries-

Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo for all that you do!

Everlasting God, strengthen and sustain all those who volunteer in our churches; that with patience and understanding they may love and care for your people; and grant that together they may follow Jesus Christ,
offering to you their gifts and talents; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Message from Bishop Fitzpatrick:
Trinity Sunday at Camp Mokule'ia
May 17, 2022


Beginning in 2015, the Diocese of Hawaiʻi began setting aside Trinity Sunday of every year as a time to collect a special offering to support Camp Mokuleʻia. This year, Trinity Sunday is on June 12 and I write to encourage you to use this opportunity to support this valuable ministry of the Diocese.
Like all of us, our Diocesan Camp Mokuleʻia has been forced to face the crisis of COVID-19 head on. Our Camp was closed for nearly all of 2020 and early 2021. 
Mr. Darrell Whitaker, the Executive Director; the camp staff; the Board members; and volunteers work incredibly hard at our Camp. As a place of ministry, Camp Mokule‘ia, before the current pandemic, annually welcomed more than 15,000 guests on site. Through its operations, facilities and programming, the Camp strives to be a place that emphasizes the values of malama, pono and mana that we have identified as part of our Diocesan identity.
Your financial support at this time would be a particular blessing to our Camp and will go towards providing scholarship support as we look to Summer Camp, completing some key projects to welcome campers, and strengthening our Camp after these difficult times. 
I hope every congregation will dedicate the loose plate offering to and welcome a special collection for the Camp on Trinity Sunday. 
If you’re at worship, please make checks payable to “Camp Mokule‘ia” with a memo of “Trinity Sunday offering” and put the check in the collection (your church will mail the checks to the Camp). If you are still worshipping online from home and want to mail your check today, send your check directly to the Camp at:
Camp Mokule‘ia
68-729 Farrington Hwy.
Waialua, HI 96791
I am also leading the Trinity Sunday Worship Service at the camp on Sunday, June 12 at 9am. If you would like to attend the service and the brunch that will follow, please register at this link by Monday, June 6:
Thank you for being generous in support of our Camp and the children.
Yours faithfully,
Robert L. Fitzpatrick,
Bishop of Hawaiʻi

Cathedral Outreach
Mahalo for your generous Slipper donations to
Princess Ruth Ke'elikōlani Middle School 

We here at the Cathedral would like to extend our warmest Mahalo to all who participated in our Slipper Drive during the Lent season! Principal Joe Passantino was ecstatic to receive boxes and boxes of footwear. He shared that his students will make the greatest use of these gifts!

Kalihi-Waena School Supply Drive starts in July!
Each July for nearly two decades, the parishioners of Saint Andrew’s have gathered school supplies for Kalihi-Waena Elementary School. This is the school, three miles away, with which we have partnered with great success.  This area in Kalihi is a low socio-economic area with many students living in public housing. The families are hard pressed financially and cannot afford supplies. The entire school has been deemed as a free lunch/free breakfast school.
Each year we provide the students with school supplies, and each December we donate extra meat for the holidays. 
During the month of July, while you are shopping, please look for good prices on school supplies such as composition books, folder paper, markers and even slippers. The Cathedral will have supply bins out at all worship services for collection. At the end of the month, there will be a blessing and then we will deliver the supplies to the school at the beginning of August.
Cathedral announcements and updates will be shared through our weekly Friday Worship email blast
during these Summer months.

The August Cathedral Life will be released on August 1!
